Just the thing for a carpet muncher - good spot

Cheaper than what i paid for mine two years ago from Argos. The first one went back as the knee pad fell straight off, the replacement went back as the height control wouldn't turn, but the third one is still going strong and used regularly.

I've wanted one of these for ages. CheeRS op

I keep looking at these to fix some rippling in my living room carpet, but always chicken out of actually parting with cash for one. Are they relatively easy for a non-professional to use? I appreciate that all you are supposed to do is dig it into the edge of the carpet and whack it with your knee to stretch it, but is it really as simple as that?

Pretty much cheaper than renting, surely! Hot!

Nice one - Reserved myself one.

Yea I've watched a mate do it a million times, pull the carpet out of the gripper rods at one or two sides use your knees to hit it in the direction you pulled it out then chisel it back in behind the gripper rod. You're probably gonna need to cut of the excess if its quite saggy.

I don't think theres anything more to it unless your carpet is fromthe jurassic period and is ready to turn to dust, in which case get a new one.

Called a "knee kicker" by those in the know.

The missus is after a labiaplasty, do you think one of these and a couple of gripper rods would work?.

You can usually spot them walking with a limp due to knackered knees.

A knee kicker stretches the carpet onto the gripper rods, [removes the wrinkles from carpets] anybody living in Torquay can have one for £10 [new] ex carpet fitter.

good for people with a hairy back. heat added

Can this be used on Lino? Moving into a rented house soon and I told them that the Lino needed refitting but the estate agents are saying that the landlord said no because it's all sealed and apparently that is acceptable.

No, it works, (unless someone knows differently), by spikes gripping the carpet to stretch the looseness out of it when pressure is exerted by pushing with the knee, the spikes, and knee, then hold the tension whilst the carpet is fixed. To work with lino it would have to pierce the lino, which would not be a very good idea

those creep me out

Its now down to £17 from argos
